VeriVery 1st US Tour Canceled As Yongseung Gets COVID, Fans Say 'Not Your Fault'

VeriVery 1st US Tour Canceled As Yongseung Gets COVID, Fans Say ‘Not Your Fault’

With the epidemic improving in recent months, a number of venues reopened, in-person events resumed, and concerts and international tours resumed. Monsta X is touring the United States with iHeartRadio’s Jingle Ball; while BTS had a four-day event in Los Angeles.

In addition, a number of K-pop acts, including Eric Nam, TWICE, Ateez, and VeriVery, have announced overseas tours for 2022. However, there has been another Covid-19 epidemic, with shows being cancelled as a result.

Due to an increase in cases, many artists withdrew from the final leg of the Jingle Ball, and South Korea was once again placed under martial law. TWICE’s show in Seoul had to be cancelled, and other in-person annual music events may follow suit. However, one group and its fanbase are going through a particularly trying time. When the epidemic occurred, member Yongseung of the K-pop group VeriVery was on their first successful US tour.

On December 5, VeriVery embarked on their very first US tour, dubbed ‘2021 VeriVery 1st Tour In US.’ It was planned to last until December 20th, with nine stops around the United States. They began in Los Angeles and were scheduled to end in New York. They were almost done with their tour with only a handful more stops to go.

Unfortunately, fans were informed on December 17 that their concert at their seventh stop, which was scheduled for that night in Cleveland, would be cancelled. Jellyfish, the label, revealed that atypical symptoms had been seen and that everyone had been checked. Yongseung, on the other hand, appears to have tested positive.

Fans have been tweeting ‘Get well soon Yongseung’

Except for member Yongseung, Jellyfish made another statement on December 17 evening, claiming that all of the crew and VeriVery were unfavourable. He was “immediately separated from the other members and staff; and has started self-isolation in compliance with the regulations of the local council and the State of Ohio. He has no other symptoms than a light headache.”

The remainder of the US tour has been cancelled in order to prioritise the health of its performers. The remaining shows in Harrisburg and New York, as well as the Cleveland show, have been cancelled.

Fans have been tweeting ‘Get well soon Yongseung,’ asking the VeriVery member not to feel bad about cancelling the rest of the trip. They realised he was online and continued to send him encouraging words. “It has been confirmed that Yongseung is tested positive. Let’s pray for his quick recovery. The concert is also cancelled, it must be frustrating but I hope we all understand, pray for Verivery and other staffs too. We love you Yongseung and Verivery.”

Another fan posted, “Yongseung was so happy with the tour, you could see he was having so much fun. I hope he’s not feeling guilty or anything for the cancelled tour.” One fan added, “I was shocked when I hear the news. Please take a lot of rest. Your health is the most important. Get well soon Yongseung! Verrers will be here for you.” Another said, “It’s not your fault. Verivery and verrer loves you. Get well soon Yongseung.”
